We Love Volunteers

PARENT VOLUNTEER HOURS:

Parent volunteer hours return to normal this year.  Parents are expected to earn 10 volunteer hours per student enrolled at Porter.  Remember, 3 of these hours can be earned by donations.

Current opportunities are already being offered through the PTO, please check out their website: PORTER PTO WEBPAGE   

We will continue to keep the VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY page current and up-to-date with all opportunities for parents to volunteer. 

STUDENT VOLUNTEER OPTIONS: 
Student volunteer hours also return to normal this year.  Students are expected to earn their required volunteer hours before the end of the school year, to ensure they are permitted to attend and participate in their classroom's end of the year activities.

To maintain our Porter Traditions we are continuing to ask our students to engage in volunteering and giving back opportunities to their family, classroom community, and neighborhood.

It is important that the conversations continue about how to give back as a person and a member of the community, even without necessarily attending a large event, or a formal volunteering opportunity.

Teachers will be helping by providing opportunities in the school setting and through classroom jobs.

Parents will continue to report student volunteering hours in the student’s agenda (page 7/8). 

Examples of volunteering for students:

  • Writing thank you notes to an essential worker
  • Helping a younger sibling with their distance learning/buddy reading
  • Shoveling snow this winter
  • Delivering the newspaper to a doorstep for a neighbor
  • Chores around the house to help the family
